Ron and I have been missionaries in Taiwan since 1995. But, our relationship with Taiwan did not start then. Both of us grew up in Taiwan, children of missionaries.
I have been working with missionary kids and international kids at Morrison Academy since 2000. I am a high school guidance counselor at this International School. I also teach Sophmore and Senior Bible classes. And best of all, I get to coach basketball and track and field. I often say that I have the best job in the world.
High school kids are the greatest group of people to work with and cross culture high kids are even more amazing. While kids with cross culture experience have lots of great qualities, their highly mobile and highly cultural lives also create some challenges. Through Bible classes, retreats, and personal relationships I hope to help cross culture kids and third culture kids survive and thrive.
